Definitive Business Solutions, Inc. (Definitive) announced today the release of their new group decision support solution, Definitive Pro™, to help organizations strategically align their investments. Definitive Pro™ is the first AHP-based product specifically designed and developed to support mobile workforces through the use of an innovative “anytime / anywhere / any device” approach.

Definitive President & CEO, John Sammarco

There is now an innovative solution for agencies and organizations who have a distributed or mobile workforce to effectively collaborate and build consensus on important decisions.

Organizations can now have their decision participants use smartphones, tablets, and laptops to provide their judgments, freeing themselves of the need to be in the same room at the same time with other decision participants in order to build consensus on decisions. Using Definitive Pro™, decision participants can provide their judgments using any device in either: a same time / same place; same time / different place; or different time / different place scenario. Until now, the primary method of collecting judgments from decision participants has been through the facilitated discussion and/or use of radio frequency keypad technology where the number of participants has been limited to the number of available keypads.

John Sammarco, the President of Definitive, stated that “Definitive Pro™ is based on the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), which is the world’s leading theory in multi-criterion decision-making according to Gartner, Inc. Over the last four decades, the AHP has been used by universities, governments, and businesses around the world to make complex decisions and set priorities. Through a series of pairwise comparisons to establish the relative importance of decision criteria, and assessing the contribution that each alternative investment makes to each criterion, the AHP is able to combine and synthesize the qualitative and quantitative aspects of a decision to build consensus and increase transparency.”

Regarding the market’s need, Definitive’s Jacqueline Ross stated that agencies and organizations that have a distributed or mobile workforce are often unable to effectively collaborate and build consensus on important decisions such as strategy development, concept/project prioritization, product selection, vendor/source selection, risk assessments, and hiring of key staff. With Definitive Pro™, there is now an innovative solution that addresses this need. Moreover, the benefit of Definitive Pro™ is amplified by its simplicity and ease-of-use, hallmarks for all of our solutions.”

Product features, aside from the “anytime / anywhere / any device” approach, include the ability to:

  • Build and manage scoring models and surveys
  • Manage the participants for a given a scoring model or survey
  • Prioritize decision criteria using pairwise comparisons in both group or individual modes
  • Score alternatives using weighted decision criteria and rating scales
  • Assess risks associated with alternative investments
  • Generate charts and reports to support analysis and decision-making
